including sioux city winter storm warning in effect thanksgiving day from 9 am to 9 pm for harrison & shelby counties the timing isn't great, but there is going to be a mix of freezing rain, sleet, and snow that will cause travel problems for our thanksgiving day. travel will be okay this evening and early tonight so that is going to be the best time to be getting to your destination. it's later tonight that drizzle and fog will start to turn to freezing rain and sleet as temperatures get colder (probably after 3 am in sioux city). much of the area will then see morning freezing rain and sleet which will then turn to snow from north to south as the day goes along. because the freezing rain lingers longer in southern siouxland, the ice accumulation will be greater with up to a quarter inch of ice expected and thus a winter storm warning for that area. central siouxland, including sioux city, is under a winter weather advisory for up to a tenth of an inch of ice accumulation followed by 1 to 2 inches of snow. this system moves out early thursday night leaving friday dry. still be careful on friday of some leftover slick areas though! we'll keep our weather quiet into the weekend with maybe a little more light snow by monday. still to come... tonight's law review is all about informed consent.

do i need to know to implement meaningful i iormed consent? "before initiatiti any procedure relating to the treatment of a patient, you must obtain the patient's informed consent to perform the procedure," said jeana goosmann, goosmann law firm. "meaningful informed consent is more than just obtaining a patient's signature on a piece of paper." what information does a physician need to give a patient? "physicians must provide patients with detailed information about risks, benefits, and alternatives including the optptn of doing nothing," goosmannnnaid. "then the patient should be allowed the opportunity to ask questions to the physician." what does the consent form address? "the majority of informed consent forms do not adequately address potential risks and benefits of procedures," goosmann said. "as a result they leave physicians and health care professionals vulnerable to liability claims." what should health care e ofessionals do to protect thememlves? do not rely upon a generic consent form,"
6:14 pm
goosmann said. "be specific. use plain language that patients can understand and explain any medical terms. be detailed. include risks, benefits, and alternative treatment options. be upfront and honest. and, allow the patient time to weigh the risks and benefits before signing." can a consent form be handled by clerical staff? "it is not simply an intake form that should be handled by clerical staff," said goosmann. "a physician should sit down with your patient and family and discuss the procedure fully before thee patient signs your informed consent form." >> brad's here -- talking about the big iowa-nebraska

"i know ever since i've been here, this is my fourth year now, the previous three years, every time we've played this team they've been good games," said iowa quarterback c.j. beathard. "i would expect the same with this game." "we didn't finish last year," said iowa safety jordan lomax. "we've done a good job of doing that so far this year. it's only right that we come out here and finish this game." "it's just another step," said iowa wide receiver matt vandeberg.

"we've come up short a few times in my career in championship games," said iowa senior adam woodbury.
